Before strutting Brazil’s 4,603 miles of soft sands, stop here to load up your iPod with bossa nova, samba, axé, and forró—any Chill: Brazil compilation will do. (Just don’t take anything with an apple on it to theft-prone beaches in Rio or Recife.)
The three-story shop features cutting-edge local Brazilian clothing designs, luxe wood interiors, and a bird aviary.
